Took advantage of the great weather last night and brewed this up on the porch. LHBS was out of belgian pils and biscuit, so I substituted german pils and cara-belge. Couldn't find pink peppercorns so I subbed a blend that had white, green, pink and black. Also used 3724 instead of 3711.

I bought enough ingredients for a 10 gallon batch but just brewed 5 instead. Ordered some pink peppercorns online for the next batch. The brew shop only had 1 pack of 3724 and no 3711, but he did have the 1581 Belgian stout that says it can be used for Belgian Pale Ale, Belgian Specialty Ale, Belgian Dubbel, Triple and Quad, Belgian Strong Golden and Dark Ales, Belgian Blonde Ale, Saison so I'll be using that instead. I'll let you know how everything turns out.

I brewed this over a year ago and left the peppercorns in the primary for 4 weeks. I would highly suggest NOT DOING THIS. Over a year later and the pepper is still way too strong and it's undrinkable. Just dumped around 40 bottles.

Just bottled this with a couple minor changes. Used D-45 syrup and I could not find pink peppercorns so I used a peppercorn mix that did have some pink ones in the mix.

Mighhty tasty brew. Cannot wait unitl it is carbed and conditioned. Very nice.

I'm thinking of making this and adding a half a pound of midnight wheat to make it dark. My understanding is the midnight wheat won't change the taste much.

Thoughts?

Just ordered the bill for this, and added 1/2 a pound of chocolate Wheat to make it darker in color. Looking forward to it. Just need to find some pink peppercorns.
